Business Resiliency Letter from Vology’s CEO
First and foremost, I hope you are well. I am writing today because the current business climate is forcing many IT leaders to put business resiliency planning front and center, and I wanted to reach out to let you know how Vology can help.
Cybersecurity threats such as malware attacks and typical network/data outages are pressing issues to deal with in ensuring uninterrupted business operations. The added pressure from recent events such as the hurricane season that is now upon us and the havoc wreaked on global businesses by the COVID-19 pandemic continue to add even more uncertainty. Unfortunately, these are only a sampling of the unexpected factors that can cause data loss and business disruptions. Therefore, the ability of an organization to adapt quickly while maintaining continuous business operations and safeguarding its people, assets and innovation is now more critical than ever.
As an IT leader, what guarantees do you have in place that give you confidence that your plan will work? How can you be sure that your infrastructure, data and applications will recover? What effect will a major business disruption have on your employees?
While many companies understand the need to have a sound data backup strategy, traditional approaches are unequipped to tackle the challenges faced by today’s evolving organizations.
Business resiliency planning helps to preserve the people, processes and procedures that businesses need to survive unexpected threats. As we all continue to operate in this environment of constant change, Vology can help you determine what your organization needs to protect value in complex IT environments. An Advanced Disaster Recovery (DR) plan, including Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), are critical elements needed to ensure uninterrupted business operations and safeguard valuable business data.
Why does this matter?
Because when you lose critical data, your business can suffer significant financial and productivity losses. Data loss can cause a damaged reputation, massive downtime, loss of clients, fines, government scrutiny and other intangible costs. Unfortunately, some companies never fully bounce back from this, with 60 percent of small and medium-sized businesses shuttering their operations within six months of a catastrophic event.
Safeguard Critical Data, People and Innovation
When creating an effective plan, it is important to consider the following: can your culture handle change? Are your workflows preserved/documented? Are your procedures for data loss and recovery in line with the current business environment?
Implementing a solid business resiliency plan improves your chances of avoiding ruinous data loss and the related damages to your people, assets and innovation. Vology can help safeguard your organization against the most common causes of business disruptions: human error, hardware failures, database corruptions, hackers, natural disasters and other catastrophic events. Our proven solutions enable your business to work more efficiently and restore critical data and services when you need them most. Put simply, we get you up and running in no time, with no lasting damage to the overall health of your infrastructure and business.
